Amazing aerial shots, great production values... this car ad wouldn't look out of place on TV, except it was made by a filmmaker hoping to sell his girlfriend's 1996 Honda Accord.

New York - This is a car ad with a difference; when Max Lanman's girlfriend wanted to sell her old Honda, the filmmaker used his considerable talents to produce an epic ad. 

You'd be forgiven for mistaking it for a high-budget commercial created by an automaker. 

Lanman hired an actress to play his girlfriend and focused on the owner, and the 1996 Honda Accord, affectionately called 'Greenie', top selling points. The price was last quoted at $4300 (about R60 000) still a hefty sum from its actual book value of $1200.

The car features a vanity mirror in the boot, room for a fluffy cute cat, and even a kettle strapped in the passenger seat to pour a steaming cup of coffee.

The 1996 Honda Accord went from its $499 starting price to $150 000 bids kept pouring in. However, due to a misunderstanding on e-Bay, the ad was pulled and Lanman had to submit the ad all over again.

The ad on e-bay states: "Ebay has canceled the original auction in error and has asked us to start the auction over.

"141 095 miles. Clean title. Well-maintained— maintenance records available on request. Registered through 8/8/2018. Passed smog check in August 2017. Brand new battery. Bug shield, rubber duckies, and tape converter included. It has only two owners ever: me for the last 14 years and our neighbor who sold it to us."
